The Australian Get Lost Magazine officials are in the country to promote Solomon Islands products through their internationals magazines.
The officials arrived in the country last week and are currently staying at Papatura Island Retreat Resort in Isabel.
They will then travel over to Gizo via Arnavons on a later date.
A statement received by the Solomon Star yesterday said Get lost Magazine is one of the Australia’s top selling travel magazines with a focus on boutique unique experiences from all over the world.
The magazine officials – Justin Jamieson and his crew are currently enjoying Papatura Island Retreat and will heading to across to Gizo via Arnavons for one night.
“The caught some excellent fish and sunny days in the island,”the statement said.
The statement added the officials really enjoyed the Solomons tropical island and its resources.
“The type of daydream not populated by money and fame but by empty beaches fringed by coconut trees and dense tropical jungle, with some mountains breaking through the canopy behind and crystal blue waters stretching to golden sunsets.
“And a dugout canoe. And a bamboo hut. Yep, all this is still just lazing in the breeze on an archipelago located to the east of Australia but a world away,” the statement added.
“Spear and game fishing, scuba, snorkelling or any other type of water activity is the go, along with fruity cocktails in the evening and the sound of traditional islander Melanesian rhythms to lull you into the sense that you’re in paradise.
“More macabre but grittily interesting is the history of cannibalism and warfare on the islands, seen in the skull caves or the evidence of clashes in the WWII wrecks that make great diving,” Get lost magazine said in the statement.
Get lost magazine is the ultimate antidote for carbon copy package holidays and frightful tourist traps.
They are an independent, international travel magazine that puts the excitement back into travel and dares to be different.
“Get lost gets kicks out of discovering hot new destinations, pioneering out-there experiences and telling travel yarns of intrigue.”
